Corey Perry file: National League Players' Association wants to appeal and overturn contract termination

Published December 16, 2023 at 10:53

Major turnaround in the nebulous Corey Perry contract termination issue.

According to the always well-informed Elliotte Friedman, the NHL Players' Association wants to appeal and have the original decision overturned.

The NHLPA's motivation is to avoid setting a precedent with this situation, so as not to allow teams to terminate contracts for little-known incidents.

Corey Perry has yet to comment on whether he is for or against the case going to appeal.


"I don't know what decision Corey Perry will make, but there is certainly a willingness within the union to contest even if Perry refuses. I don't know the exact details and I have no intention of minimizing anything, but there are strong convictions that the NHLPA cannot allow this precedent."

- Elliotte Friedman in Sportsnet's 32 Thoughts

Imagine if the players' association is right and succeeds in getting the NHL's decision overturned.

That means Corey Perry's contract could once again be valid with the Blackhawks, and depending on what the veteran decides to do, he could return to the Hawks' locker room.

We'll be keeping a very close eye on this...
